The Oculus Go is one of the most affordable routes into the world of VR. But if you’re trying to get the most out of your Go headset, then you’ll need the help of some accessories.
While the Oculus Go is a powerful little headset, it does have some limitations. It’s fragile, it has a poor battery life, it doesn’t have a lot of storage space, and it doesn’t work with Bluetooth headphones. These limitations can be frustrating, and they can curb some of the enjoyment that you get from VR.
But these problems are easy to remedy, you just need the right accessories. That’s why we’ve taken the time to find some great accessories that can make up for the Go’s shortcomings and enhance your VR experience.
Dinly VR Display Stand ($20)
You’re gentle with your Go when it’s on your head, but where do you keep it when it’s not in use? Do you shove it in a drawer with a bunch of miscellaneous office supplies? Does it float around the edges of your desk? You could put your Oculus Go on a display stand, to keep it safe and to show off your passion.
The Dinly VR display stand is a neat, 10″ display stand for VR headsets. You can securely strap your Oculus Go to the Dinly stand, so that it doesn’t tilt or fall to the floor. And if you happen to own a couple different VR headsets, then you could use two or three of these stands to make a neat display for all of your VR tech.
RAVpower Filehub ($25)
The Oculus Go comes with 32 GB or 64 GB of memory. That isn’t a lot of storage space, and a handful of videos or movies will fully max out your Oculus Go. And since you can’t plug an external hard drive into the Go, its file limitations can become frustrating very quickly.
Thankfully, you can use a wireless file-sharing device to add remote storage to your Go. The RAVpower Filehub can turn any SD card or external hard drive into a wireless storage device. Think of it like a cloud storage device or a streaming service that fits in your pocket. Your Oculus Go can stream videos and open files from the RAVpower Filehub, so long as your Filehub and your Go are on the same internet connection.
RAVpower 22,000mAh Portable Battery ($42)
The Oculus Go has a terrible battery life. It’s not a big deal when you’re at home next to an outlet, but what if you need to charge the Go away from home? Well, you could always use a portable battery.
The RAVpower 22,000 mAh portable battery is small and inexpensive, but it can hold a lot of power. A 22,000 mAh battery could fully charge your Oculus Go a couple of times, and you could even use it for your phone or laptop in a pinch. Honestly, a portable battery is a great investment, even if you don’t use it for your Go.
ZRSE Magnetic Breakaway Micro USB Cable 2-Pack ($17)
Again, the Oculus Go has a sad battery life. And although…
